Overcoming their differences
Could be the answer to all their problems
Bridget Connelly dreams of buying her boss’s veterinary clinic and starting her own business—but so does auditor Sawyer Blume. Despite her trust issues toward men, it’s hard to stay rivals when Sawyer’s traumatized daughter bonds with Bridget’s adorable pup. And when another buyer tries to outbid them both, working together might give them everything they want…including each other.
From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.
What a sweet, uplifting story! I’ve not yet read a book by Donna Gartshore, but I’ve always been a fan of Love Inspired so I thought I’d give it a try. I’m so glad I did! Gartshore took two broken people, situations really, and brought them together in the most unexpected, yet brilliant way. All throughout she dropped faith themes that readers can really connect with.
To be honest, I think what blew me away was Sawyer’s daughter. She reminded me of my favorite Hallmark movie – Christmas with Holly. I cannot imagine the weight that little girl was carrying after her mother’s death, and while Gartshore doesn’t give us her POV directly, you can kind of see how her character goes through her own growth throughout the story. It really touched my heart.
Gartshore shows readers that grief comes in so many different ways, as does being affected by something traumatizing such as abuse (if that is a trigger for you, take a peek at other reviews and perspectives about this book). And the way individuals can grow and recover (as much as one can) happens in different ways as well. For some, it’s with a K9 companion. For others, drawing closer to the Lord. The list goes on and on. I enjoyed seeing how Sawyer, his daughter, and Bridget all had their recovery separately, as well as together.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
